The 0xMonaco: Battle of Titans web3 dev gaming competition was won by Uniswap.
Teams from web3 firms including Ledger, Polygon, Uniswap, NEAR, Yield Guild Games, Chainlink, OKX, and Bybit participated in the tournament, which was organized by Starkware-based on-chain gaming ecosystem MatchboxDAO and webcast on Twitch.
The finals included Uniswap, Polygon, and security auditor OtterSec. In a fiercely competitive final between the three, Uniswap ultimately prevailed.
Developers participated in a Mario Kart-style racing game that rewarded technological prowess and used smart contracts for the cars on each team. It was described as a “web3 version of chess and poker” by MatchboxDAO.
Daniel Gretzke, technical lead of smart contracts at Polygon Labs, said: “I’ve been in the Ethereum ecosystem since 2016. This is actually my first experience with a web3 game like this.”
While it’s becoming more common for web3 games to merely have their assets on-chain and not the actual gameplay, 0xMonaco is a completely on-chain game.
In order to effectively use resources for accelerating, firing shells, super shells, or purchasing a shield, each of which costs coins, teams must develop a strategy for each car before the race. 17,500 coins are given to each player at the start of the game. Competitors must have strong coding skills as well as the ability to predict what other players will do.
Jonathan Giamporcaro, a blockchain research and development engineer at Ledger, said: “I enjoy this type of competition because it allows you to show your skills.”
However, it’s not the only web-3 game that gives developers a chance to use their coding skills. Giamporcaro claimed to be a supporter of Node Guardians, a website for web3 developers that provides a variety of coding challenges.
The Uniswap team announced that it would provide the source code for 0xMonaco.
